This grows all around here, on the ground and up through shrubs. It gets white flowers. Anyone know what it is?

Until its' ID is determined, it's impossible to know if it's a native or not.

It looks very much like c. vitalba. I did a little research and there is a vine native to the county here - clematis ligusticifolia. It is likely that, as I see it all over the county. I will have to get a photo of the bloom to verify. Thanks for your help XiaoLong!

Tiffany, I use the term native loosely to describe anything growing wild around here. But you are right - the stinking Baby's Breath that's taking over the county is not native!
